I was truly disappointed with The Sartorialist photos taken in London, except for the John Lobb trio. The disappointment lies in the fact he takes such vibrant interesting shots in NY and everything, the look, composition and lighting I enjoy.
At first I thought it was the quantity, I wanted lots and then I realised that London looked flat, stereotypical almost drab.
Was it the locations, the look or the composition? Dunno but something doesn't seem right or reflect the London I know and see.
So I reference my photographic icon, Norman Parkinson - Phonebox, London 1963. I realise I'm not comparing like for like but it is the essence of the city that is real here as well as the focus on the fashion.
